September 23, 2019: 3:00PM to 5:00PM
Downtown Conference Center at Pace University - 157 William Street, 1st Floor, New York, NY 10038 map
To Attend:

Join the New York City Environmental Law Leadership Institute (NYCELLI) for an interactive roundtable designed to discuss and educate members of the public on the federal, state, and city environmental review processes.

This discussion will focus on the Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency Plan. The LMCR Plan, released in March 2019, is an umbrella project composed of several sub-projects which collectively aim to reduce flood risks from coastal storms and sea level rise in Lower Manhattan. The content of the discussion, however, is relevant to all projects subject to the environmental review process.
